Injury Report: Skuta to Start at Middle Linebacker for Bengals

New, comments

The Cincinnati Bengals are hosting the 0-5 Colts and are hoping to head into the bye week with a 4-2 record. They'll have to do so without middle linebacker Rey Maualuga, who sprained his ankle in practice and will not be playing today. In his place, Dan Skuta will be making his first start between Manny Lawson and Thomas Howard. Skuta has played in different situation in all five games so far this season and has make four tackles and half a sack. 

Maualuga will be joined on the sidelines by cornerback Kelly Jennings, safety Robert Sands, linebacker Dontay Moch, guard Clint Boling, tight end Colin Cochart and wide receiver Ryan Whalen. Safety Taylor Mays is active for the game.

For the Colts, Peyton Manning will obviously be out and he'll be joined by quarterback Kerry Collins, defensive back Kevin Thomas, running back Joseph Addai, offensive tackle Anthony Costanzo, defensive end Jerry Hughes and defensive tackle Drake Nevis.
